Changes for 2020 Scrumptious Summerville Kitchen Tour
For 17 years, the Dorchester Children’s Advocacy Center has hosted the Scrumptious Summerville Kitchen Tour & Gala in order to support the center’s mission of helping children in our local communities who are suffering from child abuse and neglect. This event is the largest fundraiser for the center and provides much-needed revenue to the annual operating funds each year. These funds enable the center to continue providing free services to the children of our community who may have been victims of abuse or neglect.
2020 has been an extraordinary year and, with that, the center must adhere to the current regulations and guidelines set forth to ensure everyone’s safety. Therefore, we will not be able to hold our normal annual event, however, we have made adjustments to the 2020 fundraiser plans to comply with these new standards.
On October 5th there will be a combined event of the spring golf tournament and an online auction in lieu of the in-person auction that generally accompanies the Kitchen Tour. The Troy Knight Memorial Golf Tournament and Kitchen Tour Auction will offer ample opportunities for all supporters to continue to participate in the annual events, but in a manner that allows everyone to remain safe and avoid a large gathering.
The online auction will open for registration on September 1st and participants will be able to begin viewing items at that point. The bidding portion of the auction will run from Monday, September 28th and will end at 9pm on Sunday, October 4th. Auction items will be available for pick up during the Troy Knight Memorial Golf Tournament on Monday, October 5th at designated times.
All details for the events can be found on the website, along with the opportunity to sponsor, sign up for golf, enroll for the auction, and make a general donation.
The Dorchester Children’s Advocacy Center relies on events and the donations of generous supporters to provide critical services to our must vulnerable children. All participation and donations are so greatly appreciated in order for the center to continue the mission. For additional information please visit www.dorchesterchildren.org
